Summer Challenge 2008 #1: In the Beginning was Ugly

2104 days ago by Russel | 11 comments »

It has been said that it is a valuable exercise to blog a project from beginning to end. That seems reasonable to me, though I often forget to keep track of what I’m doing while I’m doing it so I don’t get a lot of progress pictures. With the summer challenge, I am going to attempt to document what I’m doing as I’m doing it. I’m expecting there to be gaps in the timeline (just like the gaps in my memory), but I’ll do my best to make them small. ...

Last day in St. Louis

2104 days ago by jockmike2 | 3 comments »

Karson you were right about the wood shop, great deal, lots of exotic lumber and veneer and lots of other goodies, but what can you do with the wife along. I did get some figure 8 fixtures for hanging pictures or mounting two pieces of wood together. A lock set for a armou’re and 1/2 in straight bit with the bearing guides on the bottom. Man I wanted to buy some wood soooo bad, just did’nt have a way to carry it home. Should have gotten some veneer but they have some back home tha...

My New Old Table Saw

2104 days ago by EEngineer | 6 comments »

I have been woodworking for a while now. For years I used an old 8” craftsman saw. You can see a photo of it under my shop photos. I put a lot of wood through this saw and it always just worked – sometimes with a lot of effort. The fence system was always painful. I adjusted and fussed and played with it and it was never quite right. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the circular marks where I always clamped the far end of the fence with a C-clamp to keep it from...

Step Stool #5: First Hand-Cut Tenon

2105 days ago by Eric | 9 comments »

Today I was able to do both tenons for the supporting rail (rail? stile?) for the step stool I’m building. It’ll be a through tenon and have wedges when it’s done. I also had time to do one mortise today. This one looks pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself. However, TOTAL DISCLOSURE: The other one didn’t go as well. My line on the cheeks weren’t very straight so the tenon narrows at it nears the shoulders. This, my friends, is not good. I might not need ...

New Member, First Blog Entry

2105 days ago by Passion4Wood | 5 comments »

First, I would like to thank all the LJ’s that have welcomed me to the website. I look forward to learning new things and sharing anything I may know that will help other LJ’s. By trade, I am a Manufacturing Project Engineer for a golf car manufacturer. As a hobby, I have been woodworking for 20+ years. I just recently completed by dream shop. I still need to build all the cabinets, etc. Before starting on the cabinets, my wife has told me that I have to finish a pantry I have pro...

Would this qualify as junk recycled wood?

2105 days ago by GaryK | 32 comments »

A lot of you probably have noticed that I havn’t been posting a lot lately. Well after 10 days in europe I have only being able to post every once in a while when I got the chance. Look like I have less then 20 days to make something for the summer awards contests. I was wondering if you guys (and gals) thought if this would qualify as junk recycled wood? I was in a machine shop about a month ago and they had just got a new machine from some place in Asia. It came packed in a crat...

SawStop Contractor Model Purchase from Cradle to Shop #9: Assembly Complete - No Surprises

2105 days ago by CharlieD | 3 comments »

The Lexus quality ( I’m a Lexus fan) fit and finish I have been touting about SawStop held true to completion. I am glad that I bought the 36 in rails and not the 52 in. Would have been too big for my one car gargage shop. You need some room for sure for the 52 in. I am amazed that the mobile base works smoothly and easily lifts the entire 375 LBs including the 36 rails. That’s is nice surprise. I thought that once you mounted the extention rails you couldn’t move t...

Conference Table for Local Church #5: More on Jointing

2105 days ago by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

I just got off the phone with the manufacturing company of the 12 foot straight edge clamp. Well, the shipping is going to be more than the clamp itself. A lot more! I think I am going to have to either go into the straight edge business (rental and sales) or go to Plan B (from Outer Space) or if any of you LJ’s that are driving from Whittier, CA to Tupelo, MS or Little Rock or Memphis, Nashville next week, I’ll drop a C note on the gas bill if you will bring it on over. PM and le...

2105 days ago by itsme_timd | 8 comments »

Our swap continues as the box has made its way from Trifern in Illinois to Huckleberry in Indiana. Trifern added some really nice goodies to the box. Hopefully Huckleberry can enjoy the bounty of blanks… the plethora of pens… before he sends it along. :-)
